Letter: Voter ID laws racist
It took the NBA to declare that racism is unacceptable in our society. If only states could be convinced that voter ID laws are far more racist than anything Donald Sterling did or said. There is no evidence whatsoever of significant voter fraud. The sole purpose of voter ID laws is the suppression of the minority vote.
On a related subject, if there is any doubt that water boarding was torture, I would recommend the film, The Railway Man. We should never forget that our country used this technique in violation of our most cherished principles and international conventions. Until we respect the rights of others at the voting booth and under detention, we will be subject to our most primitive instincts of racism and violence.
